Taliban militiamen released 40 other detainees in Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan as part of a prisoner exchange with the Afghan government, including the United States’ peace agreement with the fundamentalist movement they founded, Mullah Mohamed Omar.

Qatar political delegation spokesman Suhail Shahin reported the release of “40 prisoners of the Afghan armed forces” in the Kunduz region, citing the decision as a gesture to speed up the process and “save lives” in the face of the threat through the coronavirus pandemic.

The Afghan government and the Taliban are carrying out a prisoner exchange process, as provided for in the Doha peace agreement that the Taliban signed with the United States on February 29, as a step before opening a dialogue table between Afghan leaders to promote a peace process.

Despite the signing of the peace agreement with the United States, the Taliban have decided to continue their attack against the Afghan security forces and have refused to enter into a ceasefire, as requested by the Kabul executive, to negotiate this prisoner exchange.
